Flags at the Estacada Veterans Memorial were at half-staff as the community came together to honor those who served in the armed forces and lost their lives.

The annual event was organized by the Estacada Area Support Our Troops Foundation on Monday, May 27. Estacada resident Enoch Stalcup sang the National Anthem and "Amazing Grace," and John McAdoo provided an invocation. Leaders from EASOTF read names of local soldiers who were killed in action and performed an empty chair ceremony to honor prisoners of war and those missing in action.

New names on the memorial's bricks also were read.

As the ceremony came to a close, local veterans were invited to raise the memorial's flags.
